A recent study (2019) conducted by the American Chamber of Commerce highlights the positive regard in which the German business environment is held by US companies. Invited to indicate how attractive the German investment environment is, 81 percent of the participating American companies replied with “very good” or “good”. A further 97 percent want to either expand or maintain their current activities in Germany over the next three to four years.
A.T. Kearney’s “The FDI Confidence Index” confirms Germany's reputation as the most attractive business location in continental Europe. The Ernst & Young study on the attractiveness of the European economic area (2019) also shows that Germany is the number one business location in Europe.
